Based in the East Midlands area of the UK, Northamptonshire is a county that has traditionally been rich in industry. Sharing borders with eight other counties including Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire is home to recruitment agencies who help to fill Aviation jobs that are available in the area. The county itself is home to more than 714,000 residents.
Employers in the region, which encompasses the likes of Kettering, Daventry and Northampton, can call on specialist recruitment agencies who help businesses to hire staff for a range of permanent, contract and temporary Aviation positions. Many of these employment agencies hire staff in specialist sectors such as Aviation. The region though is also home to recruiters positioned in Aviation / Aerospace as well as a host of other sectors.
Northamptonshire, which has an impressive 78.9% of its inhabitants in employment, offers salaries that attract Aviation professionals to the region. A Quality Inspector working within Aerospace can earn a starting salary of £25,000 with remuneration progression as an incentive. Validation & Verification System Engineers in the Aviation sector can also earn vast sums, with contract positions for these roles offering salaries in the region of £60,000.
The area was traditionally home to a number of RAF stations and due to this, it is understandably a place with plenty of airfields, aerodromes and defunct bases. A hub of Aviation activity can be found at Sywell Aerodrome, which serves the likes of Kettering, Northampton and Wellingborough. Aviation work opportunities are available through the flying club on this site, as well as the presence of 2Excel, which provides bespoke solutions for the Aviation industry. Elsewhere in the county, RAF Croughton can be found to the southeast of the village of Croughton. This now is home to a United States Air Force communications base, while Hinton-in-the-Hedges Airfield in Brackley is used for skydiving and power gliding.
